It's 1932 and the remains of missing cartographer Michael Clifton are found in a former battlefield in France. When it's clear he was murdered, his wealthy parents hire Maisie to find the woman who wrote a series of love letters discovered among Michael's belongings. The lover identifies herself only as "The English Nurse".
While tracking down the elusive woman in an investigation that ventures from London's most exclusive drawing rooms to its most downtrodden neighbourhoods, Maisie must also wrestle with memories of serving as a nurse herself in the Great War - memories that she has tried so hard to obliterate.
